Man in possession of drugs arrested at ferry terminal
A man is expected to appear at Lerwick Sheriff Court today following a drugs seizure on Friday.
Police said a 34-year-old was arrested at the Holmsgarth ferry terminal, following a tip-off that he was carrying controlled drugs to Shetland. He was found in possession of £6,000 worth of heroin.
The man was detained in police custody over the weekend and expected to appear at court later today.
Inspector Paul Daley said: “Shetland police, working with our partners, continue to successfully intercept and disrupt the supply of Class A drugs to Shetland.
“It is, and will continue to be an absolute focus for local police who will persistently endeavour to put those people who are supplying drugs to Shetland, before a court in order to protect the communities of Shetland from the scourge of illegal drugs.”
